Parco Naturale Orsiera Rocciavrè

Local Banner for the promotion of the territory


As far as gastronomy is concerned, the most interesting slope of the Park faces Val Sangone which suggests - besides mushrooms and berries - at least two fine kinds of cheese: Coazze Cevrin and Tuma del lait brusc. The goats after which Rocciavrè has been named (it means "Rock of the Goats") belong to Camosciata delle Alpi breed, while the cows include a few heads belonging to Barà breed, similar to Pezzata Rossa but characterized by a white stripe on the back: used for the production of both meat and milk, this breed is studied by Apa and the University of Turin. In Dora Valley, the grapes of the variety avanà are used to produce Valsusa DOC. Moreover, chestnuts have still an economic importance.
